Trip To Disney Isn’t So Magical When Guests Start Sinking During Iconic Ride

Ted Klein recently posted a video to the Walt Disney World Annual Passholders Page on Facebook showing what happened to a group of guests in front of him. According to Klein his wife, Jennifer Jean, and her whole family were on the boat and witnessed what occurred to the group in front of them.

“So, this just happened on Splash Mountain,” Klein captioned the clip. “They went down the big drop with their boat halfway sunk and they were trying to get someone’s attention before they started going up. This is at the very end of the ride. They were lucky that they only got wet.”

In the video, several guests riding in one of the log boats – including children – jumped from the ride and scrambled onto the attraction platforms. The incident appears to have occurred after the big drop at the end, where guests exit the attraction.

The ride has been part of Disney World since 1992, but it is the third time in two years that a ride vehicle has sunk. In 2020 a similar accident occurred, and the park workers seemed indifferent.

Splash Mountain is about to be shut down for an extended period for it to be overhauled into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

“The all-new adventure which will bring guests into the world of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ film ‘The Princess and the Frog’ like never before is coming to Magic Kingdom in Florida and Disneyland Park in California in late 2024,” Disney said in a news release.
